Matt Murdoch's words, just simple words, under oath in this book set the whole tone for the entire run by the great Mark Waid and Chris Samnee.
 
Like Conway and Colan, Frank Miller and others before them, Wade and Samnee have truly made this volume of Daredevil a treat for the soul and the mind. It has redefined ol' Hornhead such as no one since Miller himself!
 
Having been a reader when Frank Miller first got to this book and what it later became under his guidance, I must admit that I was skeptical about this kinder, gentler and adventurous DD, almost a throwback to his original days and the yellow suit.
 
But I was wrong. This great drama, both for the Man Without Fear and for the Lawyer Without Peer, has been one of my great adventure after another.
 
So it is with the tone of Daredevil #36. It is not really so much an ending, although the Serpent Society arc does get very neatly tied up, but a beginning for DD and Matt in San Francisco.
 
And the words Matt Murdock says under oath on the stand certainly set the tone for what is to come to California.
 
As a reader, I am excited. After you read Daredevil #36, you will be too.
 
See you in Frisco in Daredevil #1!
